Producer of the Wes McElroy Show from 3pm - 6pm
Jesse has been with Clear Channel Media & Entertainment since 2010. He considers himself a Richmond transplant as he has lived in the River City for over 10 years now but grew up in the Western Maryland area. Deciding to attend VCU he studied Broadcast Journalism and English while spending time working at radio stations WVCW and WRIR. Jesse is currently the producer for the Wes McElroy Show as well as other shows for Sports Radio 910. Being from the Maryland area he is a diehard fan of the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Capitals. Besides his work at Sports Radio 910 he also writes a blog for VCU basketball’s radio website.
When I’m not in the Sports Radio 910 studios or sitting on press row for a VCU or Richmond game, I love to kick back with friends and enjoy some craft beer. If you listen to the Dan Patrick Show you know by now that Dan and the Danettes hooked up with Redhook Brewery to create Audible Ale. Audible is a smooth amber ale that you can crush during a game and not have to succumb to drinking ordinary light beer. Redhook brewery got its start in the 1980’s out of a transmission shop in Seattle, and grew into one of America’s first craft beer breweries. Audible is new to the brewery’s arsenal that also includes; ESB, Long Hammer IPA, a Pilsner, and few seasonal beers. Right now you can get it on draught at Bailey’s, Friday’s, Champps at Stony Point, and other locations; it will be available in bottles here in Richmond around mid-May.
Another thing that the brewery created, along with the Dan Patrick Show, is the mobile mancave. The mancave has all the essentials to enjoy the game outside of the house or at a tailgate. Enclosed in the 6 x 12 trailer are; a 39-inch HD flat screen TV, a futon, a kegerator, a grill, a cooler, and so much more. The mancave is currently on a tour to some of the biggest sporting events this spring and summer, because you can enter to win it!
The fine people from Redhook recently stopped by the XL102 Chili Cook-off where I got to hang out with them in the mancave and enjoy some Audible Ale. I also caught up with Redhook Brand Manager, Karmen Olson-Stevens, and we chatted about the story of Redhook, the creation of Audible, and how you can enter to win the mobile mancave. You can check that out conversation below along with the official press release from Redhook. Go out and enjoy the brew and let me know what you think. I may even come out with you to catch to a game and enjoy some Audible!
